I've noticed that a lot of people on here rock some flavor of linux. I'm curious to hear what distro people prefer, what distro you would recommend for a beginner, and if you load into a vm, dual boot or have completely replaced your origianl os


@sondering67 @mike I use Archlinux mostly out of habit, but it can get cumbersome at times. For a beginner I’d suggest Ubuntu because it’s easy to get it setup and the defaults are quite sane, plus it’s easy to find answers to most questions online. PopOS is an ok alternative and it’s based on ubuntu. If I was starting from scratch with no previous knowledge, I’d probably go PopOS.
